Hi All,
I have a Tech 2 but am having a hard time sourcing a laptop with XP.
So I'm looking for a known working combo (laptop with Tech2 SW installed).

Thanks!

Does it not work on anything above XP?

1. I do have a XP install disc but it craps out on 2 of my older laptops when installing
2. I do have a windows 8 laptop, will try that out sometime soon

If it hangs then it's probably a memory or disk issue. I may have an old dell car tuning laptop in the shop I'm not using. I know there is an ancient Panasonic Toughbook out there with XP on it but it won't hold a charge.

I'm currently running this on a Windows 10 laptop in a Virtual machine of windows XP (and a windows 7 version) using VMWare Workstation PRO.
Workstation PRO is a 30 day free trial but there are plenty of codes for this.
A typical install of Tech2Win doesn't allow you to run in a VM, if this is a route you wish to go I can get you a copy which has the proper emulator file.
